Hunter Nation fights back against Virginia Department of Game’s 11th hour Anti-Hunting Action

For several months, Hunter Nation’s team has been working with our members in the Commonwealth of Virginia to defeat an effort being pushed by HSUS and other national anti-hunting groups that would ban popular predator calling competitions.

The clear majority of the citizens who spoke were against the ban, yet the 11-person committee voted 10-1 to move the proposal forward with a 60-day public comment period to precede their final vote.

UPDATE - June 15, 2021

Public Comment Period on Proposed Regulation - June 15 – July 30, 2021

On May 27, 2021, the Virginia Board of Wildlife Resources, pursuant to §§ 29.1-103, 29.1-501, and 29.1-502 of the Code of Virginia, proposed amendments to the Commonwealth’s regulations governing hunting, trapping, and terrestrial wildlife.

Comments on the proposal are solicited during a public comment period that closes July 30, 2021.

Methods for Comment


By mail:
Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources
Attn: Policy Analyst and Regulatory Coordinator
P.O. Box 90778
Henrico, Virginia 23228

By email:

Comments must be in writing and accompanied by the name, address and telephone number of the party offering them. Comments submitted by means other than through this online comment system must be received no later than 5 PM on August 6, 2021.

Comments also may be: made during the August 19,2021  Committee and Board meeting.

If the proposed regulation is adopted by the Board in August, then the regulation will become effective on October 1, 2021

That means the clock is ticking for the hunters, trappers, farmers, small business owners and others in Virginia who will be adversely impacted by this ban and their long-standing conservation efforts to control the predator population by continuing coyote calling contests. Hunter Nation stands ready to continue our support of their efforts against this ban which is being driven by people who have no interest in protecting the future of conservation in Virginia.
